We welcome your comments about any of the Sites. However, we will not review or consider any unsolicited creative Submissions or suggestions for topics at our seminars or within our newsletters or products.

This page is intended to provide information about John McGrath’s GDPR compliance.
What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European privacy law that goes into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR will replace the EU Data Protection Directive and will apply a single data protection law throughout the EU.
Data protection laws govern the way that businesses collect, use, and share personal data about individuals. Among other things, they require businesses to process an individual’s personal data fairly and lawfully, allow individuals to exercise legal rights in respect of their personal data (for example, to access, correct or delete their personal data), and ensure appropriate security protections are put in place to protect the personal data they process.
We have taken steps to ensure that we are compliant with the GDPR as of May 25, 2018.
What is John McGrath’s role under GDPR?
We act as a data controller under GDPR for the EU customer information we collect to provide our services and to provide timely customer support. This customer information may include things such as customer name, contact and billing information.
What personal data does John McGrath collect?
We store data that customers have given us voluntarily. For example, we collect and store contact information, such as name and email address, when customers sign up for our products and services or seek support help. We may also collect other identifying information from our customers, such as IP addresses.
